What Is Geri-Psych Care?
Geri-psych care is a distinct type of long-term skilled nursing that specifically helps geriatric patients with mental and behavioral health needs. It is a residential solution that provides assistance with daily living by staff that is specially trained. Geri-psych care is designed to improve the care of elders suffering depression, dementia, and other mental health disorders. Geri-psych programs help older people and their families overcome problems, enhance well-being and achieve maximum potential during later life.
